buy votes of tom harkin and boxer and other people is changing the deal. nancy pelosi has planned to do the same in the house. aren't they giving them that opening? >> absolutely right. what you could say is look, they have just added into the bill. one example of how appalling this is. they've just added in a one year extension of the ethanol credits. which are a investigation a couple of weeks ago, even al gore conceded that ethanol subsidies are a huge error, fundamentally and economically. there's no one on the planet who will defend it for anything other than a pork subsidy and hand-out of the midwest states that they are going to need in a presidential election. there's no economic or other argument in favor of it. it is now included in a bill a month after the republicans won election, by promising the country to be opposed to the expansion of government and to wasteful spending. it is a total contradict of that promise. and of the new look, second chance, that republicans had said they were now gonna represent. >> sean: yeah. look, let me go to the area of disagreement tha

cut compromise. the house speaker, nancy pelosi, will not even bring the current proposed tax plan up for a vote. as we reported yesterday, many fellow house democrats are against the tax cut deal the president made with republicans. in the u.s. senate the democratic leader reid said his chamber may hold a vote soon. the white house is down playing the whole thing obviously saying it is confident congress will pass the bill. our political correspondent is like on the hill. is that true? is there a reason for "great confidence." >>reporter: in the senate, yes, we have been told we can expect to see the legislation today. in the house it is an open question. today democrats of the house of representatives voted among themselves, almost unanimously, to refuse to even debate or consider any legislation based on the framework of president and republicans crafted. nancy pelosi and her top deputy are trying to defend what is the house democrats' position knowing they are going to be confronted with a real problem. that problem is likely to be the legislation they say they are not going to

the ethics committee and censure him, what you would see is house speaker nancy pelosi standing before the entire house, rain gem standing in front of her, and she would read a verbal rebuk, essentially public h humiliation. failing to pay taxes on rental income from a property that he owns in the dominican republic, despite the pact that he was chairman of the tax writing committee in the house of representatives and solace sitting donations for a college bearing his name and from companies that had business before his committee. we just heard from him moments ago on the house floor i am ploering members of the house to go for a reprimand rather than this very serious punishment of a censure. here's what he said. >> i have made serious mistakes. i do believe that rules are made to be enforced and that we have a higher responsibility than most people and that senior members should act as a model for new and less experienced members. i do believe that they should be enforcement of these laws and sanctions. but if you're breaking new ground, i ask for fairness. >> all of the democ
